VEGETABLE trader Rafael DoCampo escaped a driving ban this week, after telling magistrates that he would lose his home and job if he could not drive.

But DoCampo - who had admitted speeding on the A1123 Stretham Road on October 6, and failing to comply with double white lines in the centre of the A10 on October 21 - was fined a total of £600.

Forty-five-year-old Do Campo already had nine points already on his licence, imposed for three previous speeding offences.

"I am very sorry, I have been a bad driver," DoCampo, of High Street, Chesterton, told Ely magistrates.

An extra eight points were endorsed on his licence, and he was ordered to pay £70 costs and a £15 surcharge.
